روز به روز به تعداد کاربران اندروید در دنیا اضافه می شود، کاربران ایرانی نیز از این قاعده مستثنی نیستند و هر روز افراد جدیدی به تبلت ها، گجت ها و موبایل های اندرویدی روی می آورند، اگر چه نسخه های جدید این سیستم عامل زبان فارسی را بخوبی پشتیبانی می کند ولی نسخه های اولیه آن زبان فارسی را حمایت نکرده یا دارای اشکالاتی بودند. اگر چه نسخه های 2.1 و 2.2 زبان فارسی را کاملا صحیح پشتیبانی نمی کنند ولی روشی برای نمایش صحیح متون فارسی وجود دارد که در زیر می بینیم.

  1. فایل فونت فارسی تاهوما را در داخل فولدر assets برنامه خود کپی کنید. TAHOMA.TTF
  2. با استفاده از کلاس زیر متن فارسی یا عربی خود را به فرمی مناسب برای نمایش در برنامه تبدیل کنید. ```
